Visual Arts students at IU South Bend have joined with their faculty and alumni to raise scholarship funds at the sixth annual “LOOK!” Scholarship Art Sale.  Over 500 pieces of art, created by fifty student, faculty and alumni artists, are included in the sale which takes place Thursday, November 10 through Sunday, November 13, 2011.

IU South Bend artists have art for every budget, whether patrons have five dollars or five hundred dollars to spend.  The sale features prints, paintings, drawings, sculpture, photography, pottery, jewelry and mixed media works.

The sale is sponsored by the Visual Arts League, Art History Club, and the Ernestine M. Raclin School of the Arts.  The show was titled “LOOK!” because the organizing students want the community to look at their art, their achievements, and look at them!

The annual Scholarship Art Sale is both a scholarship fundraiser and a learning laboratory acquainting undergraduate students with the business of art.  “The sale helps student artists learn skills they’ll need to be successful, from framing and pricing their art to establishing relationships with patrons,” says Art History Club President Katie McAllister.  Twenty-five percent of the proceeds will support scholarships for art students, 10% provides funds for student art club activities, and 65% of an artwork’s sale price goes to the artist.

The “LOOK!” Scholarship Art Sale will be open from 12 pm to 9 pm on Thursday, November 10 and Friday, November 11, from 9 am to 6 pm on Saturday, November 12, and from 12 pm to 6 pm on Sunday, November 13.  The sale will take place in Northside Hall’s East Lounge, adjacent to the Campus Auditorium on the campus of IU South Bend.  The event is easily accessible via the Northside Boulevard entrance.
